CONFUSION: Sen. Dahiru Umar Moves to withdraw Defection Letter

Our Reporters

It was confusion galore on the floor of the Senate yesterday as one of the Senators, who was alleged to have defected with 10 others from the PDP to the APC declared that he had no intention of defecting to the APC now.

In an interesting twist to the defection saga, Senator Umaru Dahiru (PDP, Sokoto) was said to have approached the Senate President to rescind his decision to defect because he allegedly said ‘time was not ripe for such a drastic decision.’

Dahiru’s withdrawal was said to be partly responsible for the decision of the Senate President not to read the letters during plenary. The Senate President, Sen. David Mark, was said to have received one other rescission order from yet another Senator.

But to make matter worst, Sen. Dahiru made himself unavailable throughout the session, as he could not be found in his office after plenary and his mobile telephone was switched off.

When E-kwara’s correspondent visited his office at the National Assembly, its door was under lock and key. His two phone numbers could not also be reached as at the time of filing this report.
